Pickled Pigs Feet

There was a gas station in Richmond Va down Cary St. as you headed Downtown...at least I think it was Cary...the in the hood section somewhere befor Vine St. that had a big ad on the window for "Backs, Gizzards, and Necks..."   yeah boiy.

It may have be a street two north of Cary.


I just did yahoo maps sat...pulled it in really close...It was the gas station at Cary and Meadows

It's good stuff really.  Fish fry's are big in the hood too...katsup being the topiing of choice in the southeast.

My dad like gizzards...never been a fan myself but I lke the livers and the hearts.


I had a Jamacan buddy that tried Chicken toe soup in Haiti....he said..."Man, I was sucking on those toes."

:rofl: thanks, now I've got a mess to clean up....soda all over the screen. That's the funnies thing I've heard in a while. I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to try that, I don't remember chickens having toes, more like claws.

That was my reaction...but I did not have soda fortunately...

I know the one you're talking about -- I used to live around the corner. They have really good potato wedges and fried chicken livers, too -- or used to -- the store changed hands and I don't know how the food counter is now.

Chicken livers, gizzards, hearts -- treat foods in my household growing up. I still gobble them up when I get a chance. Gizzards and hearts are especially good -- nice and chewy!

You know, cooked pigs feet are quite good and common our cuisine:

Another awesome delicacy are pigs ears, usually cooked and served with vinegar:

It may be true, but the first time I saw a couple o' good ole boys breaking Ziploc bags of squirrel meat out of the cooler.......tip.....if your dinner is considered "vermin" in other states, you might be a Jeff Foxworthy fan.........
